There virtually no changes that can be made outside of config mode.

There are quite a few global config mode commands.

The best way to determine which commands are available in global config mode is to type "?" at the prompt. You will then get a list of all commands available from that mode.

Basically Router> prompt is called unprivilaged mode and this only give you access to commands that will provide information about the device. e.g if you do show ? in this mode you will see all the commands, which you can access in this mode.

In order to configure some thing on cisco device you need to go to proviliged mode (Router#). Here you can access more commands and can unable and disable some features e.g you can enable debugging.
In order to do interface level or config level changes u need to goto config level Router(config)#.
There are more mode within config e.g interface level and acl level and so and so,

i hope this help
